Creamy Lemon Blueberry Pie Recipe

If it’s summer, I’m all about the easy desserts – especially no bake desserts! This blueberry lemon pie checks that easy box. It’s an easy no bake lemon blueberry cream pie bursting with summer flavor. I just love lemon blueberry desserts, and this pie is always a favorite.

This pie starts with a shortbread cookie crust – mix a few ingredients, and it’s ready to press into the pie plate.

The filling combines homemade whipped cream with sweetened condensed milk and all the fresh blueberries. I add a triple dose of lemon, too: juice, zest, and extract. It adds the perfect bright acidity to balance out the sweetness of the fruit and milk.

This is the perfect make-ahead dessert because lemon blueberry pie with condensed milk needs time to chill in the refrigerator, so it’s set when you serve it. Make it a day in advance, and then add the garnishes before serving it.

Ingredients in No Bake Blueberry Lemon Pie

Crust: You will need crushed shortbread cookies, sugar, and unsalted butter.

Whipped cream: Use cold heavy whipping cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract.

Blueberry filling: Fresh blueberries are combined with lemon juice, zest, and lemon extract. Sweetened condensed milk adds sweetness and helps the cake set up while chilling.

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Pie No Bake

  1. Combine the crushed cookies and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture looks like wet sand.

  3. Whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  4. Mix the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, zest, and extract in a separate bowl. Fold in half of the whipped cream and then fold in the blueberries. Reserve the rest of the whipped cream for topping the pie.
  5. Spoon the filling into the chilled crust and cover the pie with plastic wrap. Chill it for at least three hours.
  6. When you’re ready to serve the pie, decorate it with the rest of the whipped cream and add lemon slices and blueberries on top.

Expert Tips

  • When you crush the cookies for the crust, be sure to really crush them – if you have a lot of uneven chunks, your crust won’t hold together as well.
  • Instead of shortbread cookies, you can make a graham cracker crust for this pie. It works well, too!
  • This no bake lemon blueberry pie is best served cold from the refrigerator. It will soften at room temperature, so don’t leave it sit out for more than an hour.
  • You can also make this pie with fresh raspberries, blackberries, or chopped strawberries.
